From March 20th to 22nd 2011 the 8th international Modelica Conference took place in the Auditorium Center of the Technische Universität in Dresden.

Modelica is an object oriented; physical modelling language; which allows a very effective description of different physical systems. It has been developed for the last 15 years. The last Modelica Conferences; starting in Lund in 2000; via Oberpfaffenhofen; Linköping; Hamburg-Harburg; Vienna; Bielefeld; Como and now Dresden show; that the language is used in an increasing area of applications in industry; research and education. The 8th international Modelica Conference in Dresden was with its 316 participants from 23 different countries the biggest Modelica Conference until now.

Besides 76 oral presentations and 23 poster presentations also the possibility of interesting discussions to socialize with new people was given. Tutorials; to go more into detail into about single topics in the Modelica area; were visited on Sunday; 20th of March from already about 100 people. In the evening already 200 people joined the “Coming Together”.

On Monday the Conference was opened by the sitting mayor of Dresden; Mr. Dirk Hilbert; followed by greetings from Prof. Elst; head of the Fraunhofer IIS EAS and Prof. Martin Otter; chairman of the Modelica Association. Keynote speeches were held by Dr. Peter Schwarz; formerly department manager at Fraunhofer IIS EAS; about the requirements on simulation of complex heterogeneous systems and by Scott A. Borthoff from the Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories Cambridge (USA) about his experiences with the Modelica language for the last decade and future challenges.

The topics in the Conference of course were the language itself and its further development. Application-oriented papers were presented in the fields of automotive; mechanics and fluidic; power plants; electrical engineering; as well as in new opened application fields like building; climate; and biology. Many papers covered the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) which is an interface for the coupling of simulators as well as for the model export to support the exchange of models between different simulation environments. The papers reviewed to be the best ones described the application of homotopy methods to improve the initialization phase of simulations; using the recently introduced homotopy operator.

The small exhibition was an important conference issue. 14 tool vendors as well as companies which use Modelica for modelling tasks presented their products. Another important conference issue for communication was the conference dinner at “The Westin Bellevue” hotel. The conference dinner was sponsored by ITI GmbH Dresden.
